image for Damn, Now I've Broken Twitter

Clumsy reporter Roy Turse has admitted to accidentally damaging the Twitter website only a few days after he crashed Wikipedia. In a follow up to his joke article about Ashton Kutcher a few months ago, Roy attempted to connect to all of Mr Kutcher's contacts on Twitter by e-mail. The result was an unintentional flood of traffic which effectively denied service to any other Twitter users.

Commenting on his mistake, Turse said "I'm not very good with technology and I tend to break stuff. As this was my first day on Twitter I think I was a bit unlucky."

As the Twitter site gradually came back into service it was also revealed that Turse has already been banned from Facebook and other social networking sites. He is also thought to be personally responsible for the £150 Million loss in the value of Friends Reunited.

At 17:20 this afternoon, Turse was frantically trying to publish this story on theSpoof.com website before being banned for alleged damage to the forums.

Make Roy Turse's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
